The Reversal Of Misfortune

I always thought that I was sick and you were the cure. But everyone gets things backwards sometimes.

Sometimes I think I myself am the cure. I then realize I'm the cause of the disease.

Very deep, and very true...

~ Sometimes do we even want to find a cure for the disease that is You?

you, the writer of this blog, are somewhat a mix of a disease and a cure. addiction. cure. i don't know. but i keep coming back every single day in hopes of something new from you.

healthy addictions? no cure for that. however, you are indeed the cure for many life struggles.

i hope i made sense there.

You can't be responsible for someone else's happiness. You can't cure them. Despite the fact that you may be part of the reason they're hurting, you can't cure the base. You can win the battle but not the war.

This is what they always tell me, the people who I ask.

I want to cure him, just so I can still stand to be around him. Just so even if I do abandon him, I won't worry and feel the guilt when I hear about the next scar on his wrist, or pill he tried to take.

Because if I can't cure him, I can't cure anyone. And that's all I want to do, is cure people.

And I worry that if I can't, I'll be in the same place- forever in dark.

but how do you get over the cure?

Some of the most compelling things in life for me, personally, have always been the things which end up feeding both the finest and the most diseased parts of myself all at once. Often that is the case, actually, if I stop and consider it.

Which perhaps begs the question, what is truly the nature of disease?

I've always thought that he was the cure... I sometimes still do... but the funny thing is.. I only see him as a cure because I've disillusioned myself... the cure is within me all along... just waiting to be found.

I wish I'd realized before I started this.
